Vipera Berus



They will be out of hibernation in about 2 - 3 weeks and i will be there.
This was taken with a 400mm Sigma lens on a Canon 50e body with extension tubes, hand held and manually focused while lying on my belly with only my elbows for support.


Before you say anything, NO i was not going to put my hand in there to get rid of the grass.

Thanks guys and gals. This little lady basks in the same place every day when it is warm and i am hoping she has survived her hibernation period this year. It has been a mild winter so my fingers are crossed. I got a little complacent with her one day, took my eye off her and she bit me on the leg. OUCH!. It will never happen again. Until the next time.

Thanks for the concern Amanda, i will try.
I am a Member of NARRS, National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme and i do a lot of surveys for them.
This is the kind of work i could put all of my time into, BUT, my real job stops me from pursuing my dreams and i don't think my wife, kids and Mortgage supplier would like it if i went skipping through the woods instead of earning the daily crust.
I hate real jobs.
